Audi - "Footsteps of Progress"

Interesting commercial from Audi...

Found the ad at 
where I also found the cool video below about Audi's LED light technology:
"Efficient, reliable, one-of-a-kind. Audi was the first automobile manufacturer to recognize the potential of revolutionary LED lighting technology and then incorporate it during development of its vehicles. The brand with the four rings has since acquired a technological edge putting it years ahead of the competition, and is a key driver of this innovation. Crucial for the exterior design: Not only during the day but also at night, all Audi models are recognizable at a glance thanks to LED daytime running lights. And each Audi has its own personality: The sweeping light strip on the Audi A1 exudes determination. And that of the new Audi A8 radiates strength and dominance: Its headlights were designed and constructed entirely on the basis of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly LED technology."
